On Tuesday, June 2nd, starting at 7:30 PM, the Free Methodist Church on Cliff Drive will be swinging with the sounds of cool, sweet jazz performed live. Kim Collins, the Jazz Combo Workshop and the Idiomatiques welcome the public to come and join in the fun and help support the Young Musician’s Scholarship Fund.
For 25 years, Santa Barbara jazz bassist, singer, composer & arranger Kim Collins has been teaching the Jazz Combo Workshop (JCW). The JCW is now a premiere Santa Barbara-based forum for musicians to learn, practice and perfect the techniques of jazz performance.
Two or three times a year the JCW stages a student concert open to the public to show off what a swinging good time the musicians have had learning jazz. In this final concert of the 2014-2015 school year, everybody present is in for a very special treat. Santa Barbara’s newest professional Gypsy Jazz band, The Idiomatiques, will be performing in the show. If you like jazz but you’ve never experienced the pure joy & fun of this style of jazz, pioneered by Gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt, you won’t want to miss this event!
